I'm using Microsoft Outlook Express, not Outlook.  They are different 

I didn't knowingly "convert" the text, and my own reply to you appeared 
with the correct characters displaying.  At least, it did on my own ISP's 
news server!  Whether it got corrupted on its way to you I don't know. 
Let me see what Google Groups shows.  Can't find your or my post there 
right now.

Your message shows:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

My message shows:
X-RFC2646: Format=Flowed; Response

Whether that's my newsreader or my ISP I don't know.  My program's Send 
settings include an option for UUencode or MIME, and it's currently set yo 
UUencode, if that helps.
